That was until my daughter reached the age of 5. She LOVES to go outside and catch some unsuspecting bug and bring it up to the house for all to see... never once worried about the "germs" she might be getting!
My 2-year-old son loves it when she catches these creatures. Today, she even caught a pretty butterfly.
Here's a scientific bulletin board set that she would love (available at The Pointy Pencil).
Includes: 13 insects (largest 15 1/2" x 6"), 4 spiders, 17 labels, and a resource guide.

Emma needed new reading material so she could get busy reading! She just started The White House Christmas Mystery, by Carole Marsh... of course purchased at The Pointy Pencil. So far it's very exciting (she's actually reading it to me).
We have this and many more of Carole Marsh's exciting mysteries available for you or your classroom! Come in and see all the different titles she's written.
Here are 3 books in this series:

A hit with young and old... a quicker and less intimidating version of Scrabble.
Quiddler, the short word game - is a breakthrough in word games. Because short words, like 'at', 'is', 'of', 'ax','ow' and 'zoo' can lead to winning, readers of all ages can play and win. There are bonuses for both short and long words. You simply combine all the cards in your hand into words. The words don't have to be related and you don't play off other player's words. In the first round players get three cards, in the second round four cards, on up to 10 cards in the last round. Just words. Just fun.
Sounds like it'd even be fun in the classroom... quick, easy to understand... even affordable!

We had an overwhelmingly favorable response to them at our BabyFest 2008 booth!
Kids were riding them around having a great time!
My 10-year-old daughter loves them... along with my 2-year-old son (who STILL can't figure out how to pedal his tricycle).
Come in and get one today... we know your kids (or grandkids) will LOVE them!

Overhead Projector Storage
There are 3 panels (red, yellow, and blue). Each panel is divided into 2 pockets... to keep all those little accessories separate!
With its adjustable belt, it will fit ANY projector.
As a teacher at our church, I'm thinking about all the times I've gotten the projector out of the supply closet... then searched for markers to use with it. For elementary teachers, the storage is handy for all those shapes and teaching tools.
What convenience! Every teacher should have access to this time-saving storage solution.

Bulletin Board Storage Bag!
Now you can store your Fall bulletin board products neatly away to prepare for Christmas!
Your decorations will look crisp and fresh when you go to use them next year.
Next, we have a neat and easily-accessible way to store borders!
For those of you who like to have a wide variety of interesting borders, this product is for you.
(Note the way it rolls up... taking up so little space!)
I love the way that they can be stored neatly, keeping matching pieces together.
Get rid of that big plastic container that makes them all jumbled and crumpled!

I especially love that big cloud border at the top! Job assignments (plants, attendance, office, erasers, pets, chairs, boards, computers, lights, line leader) never looked so fun!
